California leads as usual

Happy Holidays to the good state of California.

The state of California has for many years been at the forefront

when it comes to

‘a change for the good’

It looks like this coming year they will be keeping up their tradition?

This posting is about good people being disenrolled!

Disenrolled, discarded, to cast aside, dispose of, get rid of, to throw out, a person or thing that is cast out or rejected.

Why?

Because by doing so the people doing this (their own people) will be rewarded by the conquering nation!

For most of my life I have picked up the torch from my elders to stumble through my time on Mother Earth to help make right the wrong done to my ancestors.

Today is no different.

California has nation’s largest Native American population

By Dan Walters dwalters@sacbee.com

December 23, 2013

They may comprise less than 1 percent of California’s 38 million residents, but the state — perhaps surprisingly to many — has the nation’s largest population of Native Americans,

a new Census Bureau report reveals.

The state-by-state and tribe-by-tribe reports list 352,427 American Indians and Alaskan Natives in California, and only Oklahoma’s 313,305 approach California’s numbers.

The reports also reveal that California’s Native American population represents hundreds of specific tribes and sub-tribal groups, with tribes from Mexico, at 45,933, the largest single grouping, followed by Cherokees at 20,969. However, 126,425 Californians identified themselves as Native Americans in the 2010 census without designating a tribal affiliation.

Saturday, August 5, 2006 at Southside Community Center in Oroville,

where the Enterprise Rancheria General Council met to vote on the citizenship of approximately 70 tribal members who were disenrolled in 2003.

Many of those protesting had been disenrolled.

Schatz’s Native American Veterans Memorial

This came to me out of the blue so to speak so I wrote a note or two at the bottom for this posting

Schatz’s Native American Veterans Memorial Bill Approved

civilbeat:

The U.S. Senate this week unanimously passed the Native American Memorial Amendments Act of 2013, introduced by U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz. If signed by President Obama, a memorial could be in the works for the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

“In every conflict since the Revolutionary War, Native Americans have answered the call to serve and defend our country. It is long past time for our nation to honor the uncommon contributions of Native Hawaiian, Native Alaskan, American Indian, and other native veterans,” Schatz said in a press release.

According to Schatz’s office, a memorial was established more than 20 years ago but has languished “due to some funding and logistical problems.” With the bill’s passage, the National Museum of the American Indian can accept donations to privately fund the memorial.

Sens. Mazie Hirono, Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) are among the bill’s co-sponsors.

Does this also include the non Government Native Americans that served this country?

Fingers crossed

In this short/long life time I have met and befriended thousands of true traditional native Americans around Indian country not recognized by this government?

So, this means that not only are they not going on this government memorial, all of their ancestors that faithfully served this government also will never be welcomed home with a thank you for your service?

Many, if not most of my native friends throughout the resent years that served, are recognized on military memorial.

However, they will not be on this memorial?

This should not be acceptable!

Whose father was a Cherokee chief until he married a non Cherokee, served in Korea and Vietnam, Chuck Finch (Charlie Finch) a Passamaquoddy served in WW-2 and the Koran wars, my Uncle Russ a Penobscot served in WW-2 just to name a few and yes I do know of hundreds if not thousands more if you are interested?

Point being that I will never give up the fight to return all of our native peoples, military and non military, back to the land of respect and the land that Mother Nature and Kiehtan our Creator or new name Mundu Weego has given to them all.

A land that is not only in the hearts of the people but is now known as Indian Country.

Did smudging begin with Indians or Witches

Did smudging begin with natives of America or witches

This to me is an extremely important question to be answered with as much care as possible.

Please understand that all questions are very important to the person asking and I do take each one into my heart and do the best that I can to answer.

This question is why my Supreme Being demanded that I do whatever it takes to keep the words of the ancestors alive and at the ready for all to see and challenge.

Kiehtan, we call our Creator wishes answers to all question. https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/kiehtan-creator/

This question, for the most part, depends on who you are asking and which god do they worship?

I see from my tracker that there really was no answer, not even at the site that I wrote many years ago.

About Smudging

This is what I know,

Until my grandfather made trips out to some of the western tribes,, because of many request, smudging, as it is now called, was not known to my people at least not with sage and/or sweet grass.

We always used herbs (Tobacco) we call Kinnick, kinnick.

Our tobacco can be used at any of our ceremonies because there is no need for a fire.

From what I have been told by my elders, natives west of the Mississippi river have used them, sage and sweet grass, for as long as anyone in my family circle can remember.

I also personally know from some of my visits to the United Kingdom while in the navy back in the 60’s, that Celtic clans have used smudging for as far back as my sponsors at their ceremonies can remember?

Thank you to the City of Yorktown Heights New York

http://www.yorktownny.org/

For your question.

Did smudging begin with Indians or witches?

So to answer this question please let it be said that our traditional elders preferred our herbs over smudging even though sage and sweet grass was incorporated into our herb ceremonies by my grandfather back in the late 40’s.

No fire would be used, in our case traditional Native Americans around the Uncasvillage area, witches were the first to smudge with sage and/or sweet grass, in fact this was our way of telling if we were invited to a traditional and a occult gathering.

Side note, this government has no problem with our prison visits for ceremonies mainly because of our use of herb instead of fire.

Some very good new old news

Allen Dennis Troy I am with you 100%.

If you ever get around to a part two, please research the new deadly disease that we the natives also have no immunity from?

It is called annihilation by dissociation.

If one would not drop land claims this government found someone that would and dropped you!

This pretty much ended the true traditionalist

that would not give up the
land

(Mother Earth our mother).

Years before the Pilgrims came to our shores the Spanish conquistador and French trappers walked the land and the annihilation began. Lets us not forget that we, the natives of the land have a missing enzyme (not needed until first contact) so any germs carried by the new comes would have been fatal to our ancestors.

(Speak Out: The first ‘illegal immigrants

by our readers

Dec 16, 2013

When the first Europeans arrived in the present United States in the early 16th century, what can only be called “The American Holocaust” began. Historians estimate that 20 million to 30 million Native Americans lived in the present U.S. at that time. Almost at once, these numbers declined rapidly.

Europeans brought with them deadly diseases, such as smallpox, to which Indians had no immunity. By the time of the creation of the United States in the 1780s, the policy of the government was to eliminate or confine all American Indians. Throughout the 19th century, whites waged war against the Indians, while “hunters” from the eastern U.S. massacred millions of buffalo as they shot from train windows passing through buffalo herds. The Indians became what the western author Zane Grey called “The Vanishing American.” This tragedy was endorsed, condoned, and encouraged by the U.S. government.

All this comes to mind when “news” networks and talk radio vent their venom and spleen about today’s “illegal immigrants,” usually meaning Mexicans who have crossed into the United States searching for jobs and better living conditions for their families. What no one seems to understand is that virtually none of these people would come north if Republican-owned giant agribusinesses and other firms were not hiring them. The simplest way to curtail “illegal” immigration, it seems, is to levy huge fines on American businesses that hire them.

American businesses are hiring these people because they are hard workers who will toil for low wages. Far from “taking jobs away from American workers,” as some claim, these immigrants are doing jobs that white and black Americans will not do, and certainly will not do for the wages paid to Hispanics.

The next time you feel like complaining about “illegal immigrants,” remember that, unless you are a Native American, we are all “illegal immigrants” who stole the Indians’ land and slaughtered millions of them.)

Tribes in the U.S. and First Nations in Canada are battling big energy interests:

aclsixnations4240

Native American groups increasingly at the center of fights over oil and gas.

Back when good land was fertile land for growing crops.

The Great Plains and interior West, a dry, dusty, freezing cold in winter and broiling hot in summer had little to offer.

Now, however, the Europeans and their descendants lust for oil and gas to provide electricity, heat, and fuel for internal combustion engines.

Guess where a lot of it is to be found?

On tribal lands, or near them, requiring pipes, tracks, or roads to be laid through them.

In the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries, European settlers stole a lot of land from Native Americans.

They killed them, they cheated them, and they robbed them of most of the continent.

But they made one mistake.

thCA14Y7NG

Back then good land was fertile land for growing crops they of course took it all.

The Great Plains and interior West, dry, dusty, freezing cold in winter and broiling hot in summer had little to offer.

Except for a great place for prisons (reservations) for all that was left of the first peoples of the land.

Now, however, the Europeans and their descendants lust for oil and gas to provide electricity, heat, and fuel for internal combustion engines.

Guess where a lot of it is to be found?

On tribal lands, or near them, requiring pipes, tracks, or roads to be laid through them.

Corporations and pliant local officials, today’s equivalent of conquistadors and European crowns are trying to gain control of what’s left of indigenous peoples’ land.

Revenge by Casino

Another article written by a non native for the pleasure reading by non natives!

Remember while reading this post that I do not now and never will have anything to do with gaming because of bedside promises made to my real native elder first people.

Indian Casino

If this government really wishes to help the poor Indians (Native Americans) it should start with the real poor Indians (Native Americans)?

I will always fight tooth and nails for my people, the banished people of their own land, never fighting for any wannabe’s!

Many of those so called Indian Casinos are now run by the mob!

Let’s start with the ones that I am most familiar with in New England?

A lone welder, (a full blooded White Man) with a claim to a long passed Mohegan lady (calling her a Pequot) and with a, good attorney.

A white president tired of the land claim bickering.

A ‘white governor’ and a few ‘senators and house members’ quickly removed from office.

A ton of half truths proven to be after the fact.

Now one of the largest groups of ‘people’ in the land. Where did they all come from?

Along comes another casino to follow, not one of them have ever follower the ancestors.

A third build on a island made of rock almost impossible to get to so it is just a bunch of lighting.

Another casino down south built by invading Indians and not the natives of the land.

So, why are we still calling them native casinos and how many of them help anyone but themselves?

http://www.chicagonow.com/hot-dog-blog/2013/11/a-native-american-thanksgiving-revenge-by-casino/

This should never be billed as a good reason to forget the real native Americans throughout Indian country still poverty bound through no fault of their own but because of First Contact!

If this government really wishes to help the poor Indians (Native Americans) it should start with the real poor Indians (Native Americans)?

American Indians with Blonde hair?

Boy does this bring back old wounds from past memories.

How many hundreds of times, or in my case thousands, did you go to powwows in the east and see dancers dressed in European cloth and stating that this is their Regalia?

REALLY?

To think about how many times people from the Plains Indian area would show at our gatherings in the east and carefully explain to us and our white European friends,

“why we cannot be real full bloods”!

Our skin is not dark enough, some of us have light color hair, some even blonde!

Remember that my grandfather, father and I  along with some really traditional people, both men and women from all around the eastern tribes were the heads of this group of people being told that we could not be real natives?

Today is

(Vindication Day)

Scientist through DNA is showing that Light Skin and Blonde Hair may have, in fact, started in this country,

in the Dakota’s Area!

So, I am guessing that all of those intruders into our gatherings from the west are, in fact, not Full Bloods?

Because they have dark skin and black hair!

Native Americans, Europeans share close ties: research http://www.chinapost.com.tw/life/discover/2013/11/23/394287/Native-Americans.htm

Is it possible that two distinct peoples crossed the land bridge separately and met up in North America?

Several tribes living in what is now the United States, most notably the Mandan tribe that is native to the Dakotas, had strikingly European-looking features, including blond hair, when they were first met by French traders in the 18th century.

Graf said the new finding shows that those “European” traits are actually native to those tribes.

“What this study is telling us is that those European-looking signatures, those features, came with them over the land bridge from Siberia, and were present in people who lived in Siberia 24,000 years ago,” she said.

The migration paths that may have brought people across the Bering Strait Land Bridge.

Native American ‘grandfather’ as God

Welcome to the visitor from the City of Bellingham Washington

http://www.cob.org/

Looking for information about

Native American ‘grandfather’ as God?

Why do Native Americans call their god grandfather?

Very good question.

Our ancestors relate to age, as with time in our culture, Mother Earth and everything on and around her as wisdom.

A grandmother (Objiasan) is Mother Earth or grandfather (Ohjieshan) is Kiehtan Creator and a male and/or female that has lived the culture and teaching of the ancestors are wise with age.

Since (Kiehtan) Creator created everything including grandmother and grandfather and grandmother and grandfather cannot create Creator, it would therefore make perfect sense to call Creator Grandfather, would it not?

And

Mother Earth we call Objiasan.

So we call the eldest female in knowledge about our culture and wisdom to apply it in today’s world Objiasan, Head Clan Mother.

European Roots for Native Americans?

This is funny if one thinks about it?

I have been to hundreds of gatherings, powwows, pot lucks, and monthly meetings since age 6 until Grandfather Kiehtan takes me home that are put on by native American tribes not able to receive help from this government because they could not jump through enough hoops to qualify.

This foreigner comes to our country (New Mexico) stating that this one drop of DNA from a Siberian clan member shows that our people may or may not come from Eastern Siberian and may or may not come from West Siberian or Eastern Europe and he gets his name in the papers?

Just to be clear and that you understand and the DNA expert (Eske Willerslev, a University of Copenhagen) knows.

My ancestors never stated in their story telling anything about where our people came from before crossing the Bering Land Bridge.

Nor did they state that our decedents were also Vikings only the direction our ancestors came from, modern science placed the directions to and from.

http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/38061/title/European-Roots-for-Native-Americans-/

An analysis of ancient DNA from a 24,000-year-old Siberian skeleton generates a new model for the original peopling of the Western Hemisphere.

Native Americans may not have descended from East Asians who crossed the Bering Land Bridge more than 15,000 years ago, according to a new genomic analysis of a millennia-old Siberian skeleton.

A portion of the nuclear DNA recovered from the upper arm bone of a 4-year-old boy that was buried near the Siberian village of Mal’ta about 24,000 years ago is shared by modern Native Americans and no other group.

But the boy appears to have been descended from people of European or western Asian origin.

http://donsmaps.com/malta.html

One boy does not make for a super scientific discovery, at least it did not while I was in school?

While we are on this subject, Siberian people use Round Houses.

tentsburetsm

Our people use Round Houses?

There homes are anchored down with boulders’ because of their weather.

Ours are built started by using trees still growing in the ground?

I also believe but cannot prove that both the Siberian village and our people came from around Asia?

Mayor Buddy Dyer and City of Orlando Are putting the last nails in the coffin of the last Slave town in Orlando Florida and maybe the whole state, legally welled to the 88 slaves by their last masters, signed and witnessed by an army officer, Emos F Little Capt. 161st (August 1, 1865).

I believe that this is so pressed for time, so important and a long posting that

I must write in two postings in order to not lose your interest, for this I apologize.

9 Investigates as City of Orlando continues to buy up land in Parramore http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/9-investigates-city-orlando-continues-buy-land-par/nbdjz/

The main reason why I wrote the names Native Americans first is because we the Native Americans were in the state first and the first to have our cities and villages crushed by the aggressor and first to be forced out!

There is not much that can be done now for the first people however, at this time, it is still not too late to band together and stop the assimilation by this newest aggressor?

Old Parramore:

A Real Florida Ghost Town

http://www.twoeggfla.com/parramore.html

This was a center for Native American life the now-destroyed Alday Pond Indian Mounds appear to have dated from the time when the Poverty Point culture thrived in Louisiana.

Poverty Point was an important civilization that grew even before the invention of poverty and its influences spread in all directions from a main site in northeastern Louisiana the culture that spread as far as Florida more than 3,000 years ago.

The people of the mounds were followed by others.

This is just an example of who the mound might have looked like, as stated above, the original mound was destroyed!

Mounds

Shell middens and mounds dating from the Weeden Island period (A.D. 400 – A.D. 900) still exist in the Parramore area, as do sites from the Mississippian or Fort Walton time period (A.D. 900 – A.D. 1500).

The woods and ponds were claimed as a hunting ground by the Chacato,

Chisca (Yuchi) and Apalachicoli (Lower Creek) nations and also served as a barrier

dividing these groups.

A monument erected by former students stands before the ruins of Central School Today, very little remains of the once thriving town. The stores and mills and turpentine stills are all gone. Only a few buildings still survive, among them an old one-room school on Cox Road. A monument has been

erected at the site of Central School on Circle Hill Road and people gather each year at Oak Grove Baptist Church for an annual homecoming, celebrating the memory of Parramore and its former residents.
